I can't imagine an existence without music.
I grew up in a household that always had music playing- on the radio or record player.
At 13, I discovered the guitar -along with all of the other Beatle and Stones lovers of the world-and everything changed. The guitar has been my companion in coffee shops, rock bands, through the highs and lows of life and now to my solo career.
The early musical influences of my upbringing have provided me with an appreciation for a very wide range of music. That is why today I perform jazz flavored classics, blues and covers of top 40 songs plus my originals.
Here are a couple of testimonials:
